2019 was a festival for the records, with more water kiosks than ever before, our glorious loo crew keeping toilets clean across the site and thousands of festival goers supporting us to make sure no one has their access denied to clean water, it was a wonder all around. We can’t wait to be in the green fields with you all soon.

We all need clean water to stay safe and healthy. To wash our hands, to keep our homes and hospitals clean, and to protect ourselves against diseases and viruses. But billions of people across the world don’t have clean water at home.

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads to the poorest countries in the world, people living without clean water are being hit the hardest. Good hygiene is the first line of defence against the coronavirus. But without clean water, handwashing is impossible.

We are working tirelessly across 26 countries, to install handwashing facilities where they’re needed most; to provide the essentials so people can wash their hands thoroughly; and to share the simple but vital steps we must all take to keep each other safe and halt the spread of coronavirus.

Now, more than ever, we need to work together to make sure everyone, everywhere has what they need to stay safe and healthy. Not just during this devastating outbreak, but long into the future.

In the meantime, keep in touch finding us on Facebook, following us on Twitter and Instagram or visiting wateraid.org.
